For the public, we seek to promote the work and trade of blacksmithing, both traditional and modern, as a high quality, creative craft and affordable art form which has a growing place in modern society. For an example of some of what we have to offer, please peruse our Gallery. For those looking to hire a blacksmith, please read Hiring a Blacksmith.
For our members, we seek to promote an exchange of creative ideas, provide an opportunity for teaching and learning about specific techniques of blacksmithing. How to Join.
